Dozens of states petition to secede from union

(WMC-TV) - Some might see this nation as the "divided states of America" instead of united.That's because dozens of states want to secede from the Union. And every single state from the Mid-South are among those who want out.

The White House has been flooded with petitions across the country. Most states are asking the President to peacefully allow them to create their own new government.

The petitions claim the country is in horrible economic and social conditions.

They believe the only way to recover is to start their own country.
